|A bit of graphene|
Graphene is amazing stuff: super strong (far stronger than steel). It can be made highly conductive or into a semiconductor. Alas, graphene has also been super challenging to manufacture. Peeling graphene layers off bulk graphite using Scotch tape -- even though Nobel-worthy -- isn't a scalable industrial process. So: it's encouraging to read that "$10 Bet Leads To New Synthetic Graphene."
And if won't burst your Fermi bubble, I'm going to call this a wrap.
